I am not ashamed to tell you that I am an absolute sucker for new and exciting health and wellness products, and yet with that being said I do my due diligence first on making sure they are safe and wholesome for my family to either use or consume. Another thing that I don't mind revealing is that I am completely obsessed with home remedies. Home remedies are gentle on the body and can be of great relief when your or your little ones are sick and suffering. Home remedies, often passed down from one generation to another, are natural and work with your body and immune system to rest and recover. Home remedies really work. Below I include our family's favourites.
HERBS & SPICES
Stock your cupboards and add to your food an array of different HERBS and SPICES, for they are the medicine of the food World. Use them often and you will notice the benefits. Once you have your personal collection and start using them you will quickly notice how much you reach for them, and how superior your food tastes :-)
Not a home remedy but considered a complimentary medicine, homeopathy can be used at home with a little bit of knowledge and practice. I have been using homeopathy for myself and my boys since my first pregnancy. Having suffered migraines since a child, I now no longer take any over the counter or prescribed medicines, instead a specific remedy help my symptoms and discomfort. Homeopathy works with the body, to help you journey through your symptoms and heal. Turning to homeopathic remedies before drugs could significantly help you and your family recover from illness faster and stay well for longer. HELIOS HOMEOPATHY is a super online store, with everything you will need, including basic kits for beginners. You might be familiar with the remedies CHAMOMILLA (for calming) and ARNICA (for trauma and bruising), widely used for babies and children.
RAW, LOCAL HONEY has proven benefits that include soothing sore throats, calming angry wounds
as well as a powerful player in preventing hay fever. Where possible buy locally from farmers markets or shops. If local honey is not available purchase and use MANUKA HONEY from the health food store or online.
